Abstract:

An investigation was carried out to study the effect of different holding solution combinations on vase life of cut carnation cv. Kiro. The flowers were kept under common holding solution (sucrose 4% + 8-HQS 200 ppm) along with GA3 at 25 ppm recorded significantly highest water uptake on 6th day (33.83 g flower-1) the highest transpirational loss of water (32.16 g flower-1) and highest fresh weight change of flower (152.38 g flower-1) which have extended the vase life period of carnation flower cv. Kiro.
